KUALA LUMPUR: Four individuals who were detained on suspicion of insulting Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah on social websites earlier, had been released on police bail on Sept 14.

The director of Bukit Aman’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Huzir Mohamed said three of them, including a youth leader of a party, had surrendered at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters on Sept 13 while another individual was detained in Klang on the same day.

He said all of them were detained after police received a report on the case in Kuantan, Pahang, on Sept 12.

Meanwhile, another man detained at the control post, Bukit Aman, last Wednesday for making threats and showing vulgar signs was released on police bail yesterday.

“The suspect was released on police bail as he was found to have mental problems and was still receiving treatment at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL),” he said in a statement.
